According to him,the suspects could not account for the source as well as the ownership of the cows.

“The suspects could not account for the source and ownership of the cattle, hence they were arrested and the 35 cattle recovered while investigations continue,” he said.

He appealed to the people of the state to always give useful information on crime and criminality to the police.
